Better Life with a Brain Upgrade - Part 1


Brain-Gain is the goal of chiropractic. 

The chiropractic adjustment is how we access the brain via the spine so your innate intelligence can deliver living impulses to the rest of the body.

But, your innate intelligence NEEDS a receptive body, including the brain.  



Can your organs and tissues receive these living messages?

Give your body the best:


B    bed, brake

R    repeat, reinforce, rewire, replace

A    adjustments, activity, AAA Awareness

I     information

N    nutrition


So, for Part 1 of this blog series, I will explain the "B" part of my brain mnemonic.  

Bed
This seems obvious, I hope.  Good sleep where you go to bed at the same time every night, (that does not mean stay up late on weekends) is crucial for health.  When you skimp on sleep, your body just doesn't keep up. And you feel it. 

In our society, you are nearly heroic if you keep yourself so busy that you supposedly get by on only a few hours of sleep a night.  To understand the problem of sleep deprivation, google: American Academy of Sleep Medicine and sleep deprivation to get nice resource/ fact sheet.

Many people find it hard to sleep due to pain, so keeping focused on the entire Brain-Gain plan can help.  The benefits are overlapping. 

Brake
"Brake" is a certain mind-set  to help you take ownership of a new health experience.   An important aspect of protecting your brain from stress is realizing you cannot shift gears without slowing down first. Shifting gears gives you a new journey, but it requires a mental commitment and then making changes to your plate.  You can't do that without slowing down to make new plans. 

So if you're ready to move forward in your brain health, stay tuned for Part 2 in the Brain-Gain Series.
